Seminars at the US Sailboat Show 2018

The US Sailboat Show takes place from October 4-8th in the heart of downtown Annapolis MD. With lots of attractions at the Show including new boat launches and equipment offers, we know many of you will be planning a visit, so here’s a roundup of our boat show forums and events.

The World Cruising Club team will be available on our booth VB04, every day to chat about all areas of ocean sailing and our worldwide events.

We hope to see you there.

World Cruising Club’s Ocean Sailing Forum

The Forum, run in association with SAIL magazine, offers an informative introduction to offshore cruising and will cover topics like preparing your boat, selecting equipment, sail handling, life onboard, crew management, route planning and weather for the voyage from the US East Coast to the Caribbean.

Our expert panel of cruising sailors includes Sheryl & Paul Shard of Distant Shores TV, and previous Carib1500 and ARC skippers, all ready to answer your questions throughout the morning.

Held close to the US Sailboat Show in downtown Annapolis, the registration fee of $20 includes a continental breakfast and an entry ticket for the Boat Show.
